Step aboard and join the crew on the Polly Woodside and experience a new world of maritime adventure. With an interactive gallery and an exciting program of events, this enchanting 1885 tall ship is a rich reminder of Australia's maritime history and provides an engaging experience for all.

The Polly Woodside is a three-masted iron barque. The ship's registered gross tonnage was 678 tons. The hull length is 59 m (192 ft), overall length is 70 m (230 ft), beam 9 m (30 ft) and the estimated area of sail when all sails are set is 1110 sq metres (12,000 sq ft).

Join one of our First Mates and sign up as a crew member for an induction tour of the ship.

Crew initiations take place on the hour, every hour between 10am and 4pm. The last initiation of the day will involve helping the First Mate to lower the sails.

Crew initiations are included in the admission fee when visiting Polly Woodside, and there is no need to book unless you have a group of ten or more.

So come aboard today and experience life as a 19th Century sailor.
